Mitch McConnell Making Side Deals For Health Care Votes

Mitch McConnell Making Side Deals For Health Care Votes

Facing resistance from their own party, Senate Republican leaders said Tuesday they would postpone a vote on their health care bill until after the July Fourth recess. Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska oppose stripping Planned Parenthood of funding for a year. "I certainly wasn't ready" to vote, Sen.

For families with lower incomes, the bill would repeal a tax penalty for people who do not get health insurance, saving them $38 billion over the next decade.

"This will be great if we get it done", President Trump said Tuesday.

"My suspicion is that any negotiation with the Democrats would include none of the reforms that we would like to make, both on the market side and the Medicaid side", McConnell told reporters yesterday.

According to Politico, Republicans plan to take another swing at this shitty-ass draft "over the July 4th recess and get a new analysis from the Congressional Budget Office".

Because West Virginia made a decision to expand coverage through Medicaid under former President Barack Obama's health care law, many people in the state have come to rely on the health coverage and access to substance abuse treatment it provides, even as others with private insurance face skyrocketing premiums and deductibles, she said. He added that the current bill is "not real repeal and needs major improvement".

The Senate version of the health care bill would roll back the Medicaid expansion under Obamacare, end the individual and employer mandates under Obamacare, and potentially allow insurers to charge people with pre-existing conditions far higher premiums.

"You don't want to bring something up unless you know you have the votes to pass it".




Republican senators planned to travel to the White House later to meet with Mr Trump.

On Tuesday, the Kentucky senator said a meeting with President Trump left him confident that the GOP can improve the bill for conservatives.

"The Republican bill is rotten to the core", Schumer said.

Other senators who have proclaimed their opposition, including Sen.

The BCRA was seemingly hurt by Monday's score from the Congressional Budget Office, which concluded it's passage would leave at least 22 million fewer Americans with health insurance in 2026 than would have it if Obamacare remained in place.

Those rebels were just part of McConnell's problem. Trump told a gathering of Senate Republicans.

"I continue to have real concerns about the Medicaid policies in this bill, especially those that impact drug treatment at a time when OH is facing an opioid epidemic", he said in a joint statement with Capito.

The Senate bill's largest savings would come from reductions in spending for Medicaid, the government-run insurance program for lower-income Americans, which would drop 26 percent over the next decade compared with current law, the CBO said. That's because standard policies would be skimpier than now offered under Obama's law, covering a smaller share of expected medical costs.
